Does anyone have a list of "essential" mods for the Da Vinci Pro 1.0 (not the 3 in 1 but the basic version)? I didn't see an organized list and want to compile all the good mods together because I'm having trouble finding them all.

I'll try to edit in the links later when I have time, but what else is a hot or "essential" mod for this printer? See other posts below for links to other projects. Really happy with the turn out of links, but keep them coming so we can collect them all right here for all the people that just bought theirs or will buy them soon.
Found another essential thing, a clip on gauge holder to use when leveling your print bed. I'll need to get this printed up ASAP.
Probably easier to use the paper or feeler gauge at 3 spots then try and chase the needle. I've been starting a print in the material of choice, turn it off just after it starts to print the calibration/priming line, then I use my feeler at the front/ctr, and left & right back corners. been working great, only takes about 20sec after it got to temp. remember to measure at working temperatures since the extruder and bed will have different tolerances at cold vs working temps.
I may actually need this to prove that my bed is warped, need to log into XYZ's site and ask for an update on my case.
You are right that a simple feeler gauge style is faster and nearly as accurate (accurate enough), but there are times where this tool is valuable. Maybe not part of essential tools and mods.
This is a wonderful topic and list. I finally succeeded in flashing my da Vinci 1.0 with Repetier and I've had some mixed successes so far. I think the mods from here have been really helpful as I tinker a little and learn how to work with PLA. I can't wait to print more of these to see if they help me achieve more success.
Another cool thing to have is a Cooler for your filament:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1723418
This makes having bridges in your prints very easy
There's a lot of good stuff out there, one central compiled list would be awesome.
None of these are mine, credit goes to their designers but here's a list of some of my favorite things so far:
Anti wobble for Z axis:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1884026
Bed Plate Stabilizers:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1862602

Also, though these aren't mods they are important. Something you want to print before you cant print them:
If any of these serve you well, please consider to tip your designer so they keep pumping out great stuff!
a couple more items think they might fit the pro

WOW, thanks for this list!
There was one spool holder that had an integrated dust "brush" on the inlet port, that might be the one I make. But looks like I might need a standalone dust "brush" for the XYZ carts too.
That's my filament holder i think:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1234196
User Flyon20s made a great filter for that one, take a look here:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1708113
